If there is one simple piece of clothing that can change the appearance of an entire outfit, well it has to be a jacket. Am sure, most women have a thing for jackets, not only do they change our looks but can be styled in endless ways possible. Regardless of which part of the world we live in, one can always rely on them irrespective of rainy, snowy or breezy weather. Besides, it’s always better to get ahead on winter wardrobe.
Apart from the default ones like a jean jacket, a cardigan and a winter coat; there are several other stylish jackets and coats that one should have in their wardrobe. Today, I’m sharing all the essential jackets that are forever in trend and should be in every woman’s wardrobe.
1. Denim Jacket
If there is one jacket that is around forever and always in trend, then it has to be denim. It is one of the must-have quintessential in your everyday wardrobe. Be it cropped, oversized or washed denim, when paired with a t-shirt and jeans can never go wrong. They can also be worn on gowns, dresses, skirts and button-down shirts. A solid tee with a pair of jeans and a studded denim jacket is a perfect outfit for a casual outing with your girl-gang.
2. Puffer Jacket
Puffer jackets also known as down jackets, have a distinct, puffy style achieved through horizontal stitching, which creates pockets of insulation. They have come a long way from just being used in the chilly weather or for skiing. A sleeveless puffy jacket or one with a furry hood is something every woman must have in her closet.
3. Bomber Jacket
The bomber jacket is a classic silhouette. It comes without a hood and has a zipper in the front. Initially worn by pilots, now a fashion statement for everyone. They are known for their chic and tomboyish style while being feminine at the same time. Bombers can be paired with crop-top, ripped jeans, pencil skirts, mini skirts and everything else one can think of!
4. Trench Coat
Trench coats are timeless pieces that will never go out of fashion. It looks amazing layered over every single outfit. A high-quality trench is 100% worth the investment because it shields you from both wind and rain and is mostly waterproof. A tote bag, scarf and boots with a trench coat are a match made in heaven. A neutral-shade trench coat is definitely a great addition to your wardrobe. A camel coloured trench is my personal favourite!
5. Leather Jacket
Leather jackets are the one if you want to make a strong fashion statement without much effort. They are one of those extreme pieces of clothing that can transition straight from the desk to the nightclub. From edgy studded leather jackets to some vibrantly coloured, bold fashion jackets to contemporary, minimalistic designs – leather jackets of modern times are fit for every occasion. You can dress a leather jacket up with a printed dress and heels, or throw it on over a crop top and distressed jeans.
6. Faux-Fur Jacket
Oh, boy! Aren’t they super cute? If you want to feel like you have a blanket around you at all times? Then the faux coat is a perfect fit. There’s no better way to make a fashion statement than a faux–fur coat. Maybe it’s because of their vintage appeal, or maybe it’s simply because the fuzzy coat is extra appealing to wear in the dead of winter, but either way, so many designer brands are getting on board with the trend.
7. A Classic Blazer
It’s a no-brainer that a well-cut blazer is just the classic piece to dress up jeans or team with tailored trousers. It makes you look and feel pretty confident, just like a powerhouse! From those last-minute presentations to unplanned business tours, a blazer can immediately turn you into a boss woman. If not many, at least one blazer is a great addition to a women’s wardrobe. My personal favourite are the bright blazers in pink, red paired up with a satin strappy top and a denim shorts.
Finally, no wardrobe is complete without at least a few different jackets. Whether you need to stay warm or just want to complete an outfit, make sure you give yourself plenty of options to choose from with a whole closet full of jackets. It’s time to make the move now; if you don’t have them already. Trust me, you won’t regret it!
